Harry Winks has insisted that Hugo Lloris and Heung-min Son’s half-time bust-up against Everton was just them showing some “passion”.
The Spurs pair were seen involved in a heated discussion with each other as they walked towards the tunnel at half-time against the Toffees.
Lloris was seemingly unhappy with Son’s lack of effort in tracking back just before the break which led to a good chance for Everton to equalise.
However, Winks has now admitted there are no deep-lying negative feelings between the two who simply let their passion get the better of them on the pitch.
The 24-year-old also insisted that the pair had made up during the break which could be seen at the final whistle as they hugged following the narrow victory.
“It was just a bit of passion from the two players,” said Winks (Football.London).
“It was a heated discussion about something which happened on the pitch which is normal in football. But it’s nothing to really comment on.
“The players made up in the dressing room at half-time and they were back to normal at the final whistle.
“It was a bit of passion which is never a bad thing to have in the team.”
The incident came after Jose Mourinho had publically admitted that he was disheartened by the lack of fight shown by his players in the 3-1 defeat to Sheffield United (Standard).

I have to agree with Winks. This sort of thing will happen just about every game behind closed doors in the changing room. Lloris often gets a lot of criticism for not showing the characteristics of a captain but he certainly did on Monday night.
